Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along 

When: Fri., May 23, 10:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $8
When organizers at the New Parkway Theater (474 24th St., Oakland) decided to add a new program to their lineup last April, they looked for a Rocky Horror-type event that wasn’t already happening in the East Bay. They decided on a sing-along to Trapped in the Closet, R. Kelly’s “hiphopera” about a man, Sylvester (played by Kelly), who has a one-night-stand with a preacher’s wife (and later finds himself in the middle of several other preposterous plot twists). The sing-along, which happens every fourth Friday of the month, regularly draws a crowd of about one hundred people. The night begins with a dance party to the singer’s greatest hits and is followed by the screening of Trapped. If you’ve never seen the production, it’s still easy to sing along because the whole video is subtitled — and if you have seen it before, you’ll know exactly when to shout “Oh my God, a rubber!”
